42nd St. Pete n stuff

Had a great interview with Pete last Saturday night. Discussed Rainy Day Friends new DVD, among many other things…plus the diminishing concern for the public in seeing film on the big screen as opposed to handheld devices…somethings change, but this is an insult to cinema, everywhere…just sayin’…


What a great, creative way to start the New Year…getting the opportunity to work with Amanda Kimmerly and Robert Stikmanz on a reading of Robert’s short story, Death On The Toilet, and then filming a promo for Kickstarter. We get it going at the Bayless manse—the epi-center of South Austin, and laid it down. Can’t […]

Happy Days

My grand-daughter Nicolette and her mother, Celina, are visiting from L.A….arrive tomorrow, the 31st, New Year’s Eve…how about that? This is going to be wonderful. I haven’t seen Nico for a couple of years, and she now is almost grown, (17) and getting ready for college. Man o man, where does the time go?: Nico […]


Well, after Chris and I spent a wonderful Christmas at Barbara Robin’s for another great dinner (Barb being one of the best cooks in Austin) it is time to reflect, be grateful, clean house, and get ready for early visitors from Calif. On New Year’s Eve, my granddaughter Nico and her mom, Celina, are visiting […]

Holidaze and Holy Days

Network Austin Mixer was a great event. These folks are the loop, Austin wise, and they still are open and friendly to newbies. Besides meeting Donise and Gary, I ran into old pals Dean Reading, Gabrielle, Bee, Forrest et al. It’s great to now know where to go in Austin if you just want to […]

Austin Film Mixer

Well, tonights the night…we are meeting up at Baby Acapulcos on 135 North to hob-nob-jaw-jack, and listen to me pontificate on years in film…Be there, as we plan to kick it up a notch….

A Revolutionary Rennisance…kind of.

The Birthday Celebration and screening at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas was a huge success. The boys, Lars and Zack, were showing both The Pyramid and an old Steckler film, The Thrill Killers. I did a stunt gag with Lars to open the eve., he presents me with bottle of Champagne, we argue, he […]
